Would have been nice if you told us the content of the BSOD error message.

This is typical trojan behavior..

Go onto and download the program Spybot - Search and Destroy, it will find whatever threat is doing this to your computer and kill it.

If it is a trojan, it is most likely messing with your registry settings as well, and depending on this errors, Spybot will fix those too. However, if some issues still persist afterwards, check out Registry Mechanic on the same website.

I really hope this helps!

Thank you. Someone else said the power pak. We replaced that this weekend and so far so good. If it happens again I will try that. Thank you very much.
